Cannabis infused beverages are quickly becoming a burgeoning vertical of the entire cannabis industry and this is a trend that we are excited about.

After Constellation Brands (STZ) made a $4 billion investment in Canopy Growth Corporation (WEED.TO) (CGC), we knew that cannabis infused beverages were going to be a major part of the market over the long-term and continue to monitor how the industry advances.

About That ‚ÄúSkunky‚ÄĚ Cannabis Smell

Researchers believe they may have identified the chemical primarily responsible for complaints regarding the smell of some marijuana and hemp cultivation operations.

We recently mentioned complaints in connection with the¬†smell of hemp farms¬†‚Äď some of them anyway ‚Äď are far from being uncommon.

Being healthy is so much more than just vigorously washing your hands ‚ÄĒ although that doesn‚Äôt hurt.
